Cathy Park Hong is the author of Translating Mo’um and Dance Dance Revolution and has won a Pushcart Prize and the Barnard Women Poets Prize. She lives in New York and teaches at Sarah Lawrence College.
Merin Tigert, Idaho native, burlesque performer, and long time fanatic of the practical use of ancient weaponry, received her MFA in Poetry from BSU in 2011. Merin’s first book of poetry “The Grotesque Menagerie” is currently seeking a publisher willing to work with a manuscript focused on cannibalism, spousal murder, and taboo sexual practices. Both are cheerfully pessimistic about finding such a publisher.
